Four master soloists explore the magic of transcription. The centerpiece of the evening is Edward Steuermann’s famous transcription of Schoenberg’s early masterwork (originally written for string sextet), Verklärte Nacht (‘Transfigured Night’). In another highlight, Scottish percussion virtuoso Colin Currie performs a work commissioned for him: Rolf Wallin’s Realismos Magicos for Solo Marimba, inspired by the magic-realist stories of Colombian Nobel Prize–winning author Gabriel García Márquez. The program also includes music by Beethoven and Shostakovich.

Performance Timing: TBA
